Charles D. White Sr.

Published 8:20 am Thursday, February 18, 2021

Charles D. White Sr. was called to rest on Thursday, Feb. 11 at his residence in Walnut Cove, North Carolina.

Charles was born in Cumberland to the late Charles Irving and Gertrude Brown White on Sept. 17, 1956. He was a faithful member of Kingdom Hall-Jehovah’s Witness in Walnut Cove. Charles dedicated his life to Jehovah where he was baptized as a Jehovah’s Witness and remained dedicated. Charles always wanted to preach and teach the good news of Jehovah’s Kingdom. As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, his hope was to live again on a paradise Earth where he hopes to reunite with his love Julia Toney White. Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Charles was an avid basketball fan, with his favorite team being the LA Lakers. He also enjoyed crossword puzzles, reading, playing chess and most of all, spending time with his family and his friends.
